A Financial Times Service
China Confidential - Premium Investment Insight
13 August 2012

The renminbi has recently traded at its lowest levels in the onshore forwards market since March 2011. This is the result of aggressive US dollar buying by Chinese corporates, who have been desperate to cover the ‘short US dollar’ positions they had built up over the past year. Last week, one-year US dollar/renminbi forwards had tumbled to Rmb6.4815 - its lowest level this year - as Chinese corporates scrambled for US dollar liquidity (see chart).
